It was quite a sight to see for a sightseeing ship off the coast of California near Monterey. An incredible "Dolphin stampede" was caught on camera. You can see a pod of seemingly hundreds of dolphins fleeing in unison. From what eyewitnesses on the ship described as an ambush from killer whales.

Dog owners in Madrid beware: Pick up after your pooch or face working as a street cleaner. Madrid Mayor Manuela Carmena is warning dog owners they`ll face stiff fines or possibly weekend work as street cleaners if they are caught in an upcoming dog poop crackdown. Dog owners could be fined up to 1,500 euros ($1,700) if caught.

72-year-old Eileen McCartney fought back when a group tried to steal her bank card as she used an ATM. Security footage shows Eileen walking into the bank to the machine. Just moments later one of the gang points to the ground showing her a $20 bill that had dropped on the ground while another stole her bank card. Lucky for Eileen, she realized what was going on demanding her bank card back and walked the man into the bank to get help.
